Testimonials from Piano and Voice Students

"Elise is an incredible voice coach! She listens close to your vocal needs and helps you achieve the vocal aspirations. I worked with Elise for a little more than nine months and my range, tone, and technique improved so much. By far best vocal coach I've ever had."

- Austyn, age 20, vocalist

"Elise is warm, accommodating, and obviously very accomplished. It's really fun working with her."  

- Gary, age 62, vocalist

"Elise is wonderful! she cares about her students and is a patient and kind teacher. Elise shares her enthusiasm for music with my daughters and they really enjoy her teaching style."

- Sophia, mother of two pianists

"Elise is kind, patient, and encouraging, yet structured, prepared, and skilled. Our daughter was struggling with confidence and attempting to imitate other singers, rather than learning basic techniques to bring out the best quality of her voice. Time with Elise has been worth the investment as our daughter is maturing in her attitude and diligence about practicing. I would highly recommend Elise as an instructor for any age."

- Dana, mother of 10 y/o vocalist

"Elise is really amazing,I loved her from the first day,she is very knowledgeable,she knows what she is doing,if you are preaparing for audition or something else,I am pretty sure she can guide you perfectly❤️❤️"

- Ana, age 23 vocalist

"My child was skeptical about starting piano lessons, but Elise drew her in and got her excited about playing and practicing! She’s helping me brush up my own skills, too. Warm, professional, and willing to work with you where you are."

- Sarah, mother of young pianist
